Support the Blue Hills Otter Exhibit Maintenance Fund

Sanctuary Director Norman Smith has been a fixture at Blue Hills Trailside Museum for over 50 years. As his retirment in November approaches, we reflect on his devotion to raptor research, wildlife conservation, and helping people of all ages develop an appreciation for the wonders of the natural world.

The otter exhibit in particular has been a passion of Norman's for decades. Originally constructed in 1960 as one of Trailside's very first exhibits, the enclosure is now undergoing a total renovation for the first time ever.

We invite you to celebrate Norman's remarkable tenure with a gift to the Otter Exhibit Maintenance Fund in honor of his retirement.

If you have any questions about your gift, please contact Emily Sabo at 781-259-2136 or by email.
